Such a nice place! Every time I visit La Mar Avenue it is one of the streets with best culinary offers around the city. You can find everything from bakeries to pastry shops and now also La Nacional, a new offer of the chef Miguel Alonso Hernandez, the place promises to be one of the best culinary options in the city.
LA TIENDA MATE
It is one of my new favorite places. And I haven’t even visited it yet. But I think that the space of the warehouse of Mario Testino’s new cultural association, MATE, is not only very well designed but it has art, design objects, books, beautiful souvenirs for every taste, lovers of art or not. It is an obligatory stop.
It is an incredible space in the middle of Miraflores. If you are walking down Jose Galvéz Street, a giant structure will call your attention. It looks like an unknown dimension: a school of climbing, with walls for all the ages, and a cafeteria with organic and healthy plates. It makes you feel the need to go just to sit down.
BUENA VISTA CAFÉ
How is it possible that nobody had thought of this before? Opening a business in a space like this one? Just to be able to sit down with a coffee in somewhere with this view is a privilege… … what else you can ask for. Well someone very brilliant had the great idea to open a coffee and name it “BUENA VISTA” (good view) because literally you see a great part of the littoral between Magdalena, Miraflores, Barranco and up to the infinite and beyond.
